12:00 am
for years rarely discussed. till now i've really rather not talk about that way. until moscow says it will cut off gas supplies for ukraine it's fails to sort out paying its debt by the deadline. america is tooled up police patrols as the pentagon hands out its hardware left we asked whether officers really need military grade. plus britain's first secret trial an appeals court forced the government's plans to dispense some closed door justice in the name of national security.
12:01 am
and other work in the watching r.t. international with me and. now this just two hours left the key have to pay hafiz gas debt to russia if nothing is agreed moscow says it will cut off supplies for ukraine but the sides fail to. reach talks in kiev on sunday night let's get more now from our teacher men in a core set of who's just outside gazprom his headquarters in the russian capital marina it does look like this time doesn't it that russia is not going to allow ukraine to delay its payments. that's exactly what it seems like i could be talking about wortham is that line for ukraine and russia has been quite patient so far considering the amount of money it's all with we're talking about four and a half billion dollars in debts and russia has tried to be reasonable for a new deal that many actually with described as a steal half the money now twenty percent discount on the rest of the day plus one hundred dollars off the contractual price for you. fix for at least one the year
12:02 am
this would actually save ukraine millions of dollars in the long term so basically russia is asking for a reduced three hundred eighty five dollars per thousand cubic meters and in fact this is a price that even the european energy commissioner has called reasonable but that's not the view of ukraine's prime minister because he wants to play no more than two hundred sixty five dollars which is the price agreed upon with the koreans previous leadership before february scusa now both sides are prepared to go to the international courts ukraine with accusations of political game playing russia simply want to repay them actually russia has moved back the deadline many times but now it seems that patience has finally run out and europe will have to deal with it with ukraine stubbornness and many european countries are now dreading a repeat of two thousand and six in two thousand and nine when ukraine was called siphoning fuel intended for them from transit pipes and since many european countries that may heavily on russian gas their concerns are obviously
12:03 am
understandable but it seems that at the moment here doesn't seem to care that much . ok thanks to. the headquarters. headquarters in moscow we're going to bring in. very much involved in this gas standoff worrying for its own supply is there since the beginning the rhetoric has intensified with kiev refusing to back down and there are plenty of warnings that russia's interests are at stake too so let's bring in our teacher in collusion to look closer at the main ramifications of all this what we've heard here. europe is concerned do you think europe's fears are justified i mean if you crane starts to siphon off this gas can the rest of europe actually do without russian gas well let's have a look at a centrally the fourth biggest misconceptions about the gas. that there are out there and this is essentially a number one misconception we're going to have a man. here there we go which is going to show that exactly how dependent each
12:04 am
european state is on russian gas they're all color coded so obviously these are the ones that depend on russian gas the most and so forth there is a great nation going on so essentially the. if we were to replace russian gas with something else we would need replacement pipes and terminals and they can all be built overnight so there's obviously a huge problem there and even if they could do that overnight the world bank estimates that the prices would shoot up roughly fifty per cent something that's going in the european policymakers are going to have a really hard time selling to taxpayers ok ukraine seems to believe it can find alternative supplies is that the case do you think well if you're referring to the misconception number two and that is the european leaders talking about reverse gas flow through their pipelines ukraine well they made a really big deal out of that but if we look at the factional figures there what is really happening is that they are they're essentially letting ukraine keep some of
12:05 am
the gas that europe is getting from russia. you know to make up for what they're missing in this case they actually have to buy market at a far more you have to buy gas at a far more expensive market price essentially european taxpayers already have to cough up much more for their heating just to payroll the political grandstanding what about the possibility of american shale gas because there's an awful lot that could help the situation could they provide shell gas to europe and to ukraine it's one of their most probably debatable and one of the hottest topic in this entire. and this is very fair and it's a misconception number three of course the u.s. would love nothing more than to sell its gas shale gas to europe but unfortunately for them the atlantic ocean is pretty big in order to sell it they will actually have to move the gas across to europe and the gas prices in europe right now are simply too low to justify the shipping. which would be incredible in that case and
12:06 am
it would take about two million tanker trips a year in order to actually satisfy europe's demand for gas and if we taken into account the fact that there are only four hundred gas thinkers that actually exist right now we have a major problem on our hand with that scenario ok well let's just imagine that did happen here and they were able to do this how much of a blow would it be for russia to lose that market the european market well it would have been a rather big blow but fortunately for russia we have the gas deal with china and the world that yes the final the fourth misconception the world gets about three trillion cubic meters of gas a year but because china is projected to start consuming two trillion as we can see right there there's going to be certainly no shortage of appetite for russian gas in that respect and all of that because of the gas deal that russia and china finally got in place ok. explaining the possible ramifications of this no and to discuss disputes that journalists have come under fire in this in east
12:07 am
ukraine where kiev's army is pressing on with its military operation against the defined region a correspondent for marty's agency was among them local officials in another restive region the guns that the weekend saw over one hundred people including defense forces and civilians killed the violence is forcing thousands from their homes has been hearing about their ordeal. the refugees have certainly had itself in the last few weeks but for some the burden of displacement turned out to be much heavier than for others kids with physical impairments and their mothers were left to fight for themselves in the shellshocked east of ukraine alexei was born with a very rare condition and has never seen the light of day his mother you didn't think twice when she was told this so-called antiterrorist operation was approaching her town near the gums she's all settled in here now in the safety of

12:10 am
the present in the pentagon they want it gathering dust. as america continues winding down its longest streak of war soldiers are returning home and so is their military arsenal a used armored vehicle that will be used during swat calls and other emergency situations nine foot tall mine resistant trucks specifically designed to survive roadside bomb attacks are parked all throughout the u.s. local and state police departments have acquired more than four hundred m. wraps and silencers and tens of thousands of m. sixteen machine guns and night vision equipment is a new paradigm is the military paradigm militarized police and the problem with that is when they look at american sort of golf and they see only combatants this is all made possible through america's military transfer program created in the ninety's when violence and drug gangs plagued major cities today crime in the u.s.
12:11 am
has fallen to its lowest in a generation and the special response team in richland county south carolina looks like this ready to take on the taliban should it invade the south this year the thing that it's doing is basically just making it more and more obvious that they are being watched her eyes are police forces are being turned into soldiers iraq war veteran emily yates says her country's law enforcement is being trained to fight against the public instead of serving to protect it they should be trained to deescalate any violation or gresham that's happening but instead the police are showing up and causing violence and aggression people are just afraid all the time and for no reason our country has never been invaded we have no foreign army at our doorstep however a sheriff in indiana claims his county needs m. wraps to protect against possible attacks by veterans returning from home i see
12:12 am
a lot her annoy about that her that i don't like it usually excuse to harm the police like they're. you know like the people of afghanistan that we've got a problem but using that as a way to militarize the police or whatever they think might be coming in the future a future where america's local police forces will be prepared for war but who will they be warring against merino port naya r.t. . there are more than a few people worried that the local police are getting say two retired captain ray lewis sided with protesters off the offices pepper sprayed peaceful demonstrators at occupy wall street at an occupy wall street rally in twenty eleven he told us that once police have more firepower and military good crackdowns could become more brutal than ever. high caliber weapons are extremely dangerous they have a very high ricocheting velocity and that means that innocent people are going to
12:13 am
get killed and injured they will be shot they can go through doors they can go through cinder block they can go through metal car doors and this type of velocity is not necessary think of kent state where they shot so many and killed so many innocent people and they were not high caliber weapons can you imagine the massacre that would take place if officers had high caliber weapons they will sell this high equipment the repair the maintenance for this will come from taxpayers' money corporate america will make billions off its all for this equipment you heard of the prison industrial complex you heard of the military industrial complex corporate america now wants to make a pall lease industrial complex well they'll make billions off a police department's. we are back among the world cup crowds in brazil in a few minutes time and not everyone's got full will play with the bright the protests on the parting of the planet's biggest sporting a bad. place

12:17 am
roast are going to be held in secret the important issue here is the very issue of open justice because we have a long tradition that the justice to it's not enough for justice to be done it's got to be seen to be done in this case was an extraordinary departure by initially allowing the whole of the case to be heard in secret at the heart of the debate around secret courts is this can mash and security information ever be made public the government's stance there is no there are people who are saying that it's a dangerous precedent they are wrong it's neither dangerous nor a precedent as far as the precedent point is concerned the have been many trials in which part of the hearing has been held in secret for national security reasons house for being dangerous it's not dangerous because the judge will god the firmness of the trial down in public if a top possible for hundreds of years we've been able to have jurisprudence on cases that involve sensitive issues there are always ways in which the evidence can be

presented that will protect for example surveillance or secret service operations there's no. but on the press from it whatsoever if we don't know what's going on what's being reported it could easily lead to an increase in miscarriages of justice ultimately it is the judges that this saeed there will be released no doubt this in this instance the cool cheese not to get it as a police secret trial the concern now is that with more applications that they won't be. surface r.t. reporting from london. now football's finest are battling it out in brazil at the moment and it seems to get ahead you need. a lot of it so the french claims it's training sessions have been watched by a spy drone at r.t. dot com you can find out whether it's down to rivals handywork or a devoted fan at the controls. banking terrorists with entrapment muslim

first ever european championship and the police of revolutionary managers with the break up of the soviet union football just as many other spheres of life suffered a major setback it may be a coincidence but along with these problems came whole organism it is still unclear what caused the surge in violence at the time but even in more recent years russian hooligans have still been making headlines from violent pitch invasions mass treats rallies to racist incidents and swastikas in the stands but former hooligan found over russia's largest fan movement to market and i have a believes the issue is often blown up in the press and problems are usually solved even before they appear. we're going to. spearhead events of the mine down in ukraine some of them are in the national guard now so potentially this is a very dangerous part of society but are all thor it is a pursuing a very clever strategy with hooligan communities so there's no danger from the in russia these fights happen every weekend but no one knows
